What’s the status of my application?

We are being weighed down by all of the MAcc mail. Get your stuff in by November 7.


“I mailed my transcripts last week, did you get them?”

About two weeks before major deadlines, the Fisher MAcc application office becomes inundated with transcripts, GMAT scores, and applications. MAcc staff is working tirelessly to make sure applications are complete for review.

If you have e-mailed us and we have not returned your e-mail, please note that the MAcc email inbox is steeped with requests about whether or not applications materials have been received. Additionally, please note that it can take a few weeks for the staff members to update your status. The best way to keep up with your application is to check your ApplyYourself account (read this blog post for a refresher) and not ask the MAcc office if your items have been received. If we are busy answering e-mails, who is going to process the applications?

If we receive your materials by November 7, your items will make the deadline. Anything received after November 7 will be considered under the next applicable deadline.

Last, we have received many requests asking if the admissions committee can review an application without official scores, transcripts, etc. The MAcc program will not review any incomplete applications and will not make decisions based upon scanned and uploaded copies of these items. In order to satisfy the review requirements all items must be received by us by November 7.

    I’m sure that’s only a small part of the mail stack, too!

    Is the early decision process/deadline a new item this year?

    Truely understand

    The early decision deadline is new this year in response to applicants in past years wanting a “guarantee” of an early response if they replied by an early deadline. The other deadlines in place are similar to ones we have had in past years.

    I think some of the best advice I got when applying to Ohio State was to finish the application as quickly as possible, while still making sure that each part of your application is as strong as it can be.

    Good luck everybody, and Go Bucks!

    That’s very good advice!
